Goodio launches nationwide in Barnes & Noble. Company’s vegan and organic chocolates will be launched in all of the retailers bookstores in September.
– This is a significant milestone for our U.S. business. As a result of this launch we’ll be in more than 600 locations in all states. We are delighted to have our chocolates widely available to American consumers all over the States, says Goodio USA’s CEO Jussi Salonen.
Goodio established a subsidiary in the U.S. in 2018 and has been growing ever since. Before Barnes & Noble Goodio's chocolates have been available at Whole Foods Market, Thrive Market and other select retailers nationwide. Expansion of Goodio’s footprint in the American market highlights the demand for vegan craft chocolates.
– Brick and mortar businesses are changing. Retailers are looking for alternative ways to meet customer needs. More exotic and exclusive products seem to be a great fit for this trend. Also Finnish design paired up with ecological and ethical chocolate is something people are inspired by, points out Salonen.
